Paid collection

You need to dispute the collection with the CRA's as well as the collection agency.  If they keep reporting the collection and keep sending you letters you may have recourse under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  Many of these collection agencies are real slimy and report lots of misinformation.  Also, they try and collect on old purchased debts that have already been paid off.
